policy, energy prices, job market, debt situation and something is not on track. that's what we're seeing. bill: this also stand out too. in our polling. when asked, which candidate would likely take the lead on world events, keep in mind what is happening with libya and throughout the arab world, governor romney is at 52%. president obama is at 36%. what explains that? >> i think it is explained explicitly what happened over last several weeks with libya and egypt and 30 other capitals where our embassies were targeted for attack. let's get blunt. no way to sugar coat this. we have been flat-out lied to. they know they lied. as if airplanes crashing into the world trade center said those were just accidents. anybody with two eyes and iq of plant life knows what happened in libya was not spontaneous reaction to a 13 minute video on youtube. it was a planned orchestrated attack led by terrorists, terrorists, bill. and this white house has to explain why it hasn't owned up to that. why it can't say it. i think frankly, if this issue really gets traction that it deserves, and let it say it d

with countries around the world to deepen ties of trade and investment, and science and technology, energy and development -- all efforts that can spark economic growth for all our people and stabilize democratic change. but such efforts depend on a spirit of mutual interest and mutual respect. no government or company, no school or ngo will be confident working in a country where its people are endangered. for partnerships to be effective our citizens must be secure and our efforts must be welcomed. a politics based only on anger -- one based on dividing the world between "us" and "them" -- not only sets back international cooperation, it ultimately undermines those who tolerate it. all of us have an interest in standing up to these forces. let us remember that muslims have suffered the most at the hands of extremism. on the same day our civilians were killed in benghazi, a turkish police officer was murdered in istanbul only days before his wedding. more than 10 yemenis were killed in a car bomb in sana'a. several afghan children were mourned by their parents just days after they were ki

they went to the international atomic energy organization and said we need some fuel plates and no one was willing to sell it. whether you buy the argument or not is irrelevant. i think the main point of the speech, we're not going to have a war this year. >> this year. it keeps, it's a six-month thing. >> let's not forget netanyahu 20 years ago said iran is six months way from a bomb. he's had these ideas about and this contradictory notion that came up today, which was if their messianic and if they're international, what will that do. >> but the report he referred to, i'm not even referring to israeli intelligence, go online. look at the report and it says their nuclear program is accelerating. at their underground bunker facility. >> inspectors are there. >> not as much as the iaea has requested. >> before it was under complete inspection, all the uranium there is under lock and key and on camera. parnlgen is a military base and you have to present evidence as to why you want to go. i think it's a bargaining point. >> a bargaining point, is it possible that what iran and israel are

to really provide stimulus for this economy. we don't have an energy policy and have not had a budget in three years. as a result, businesses are waiting to see and what happens with the election and waiting to see what their lives will look like, the tax rates, regulation, etc. they are upheld by the health care expense, so they're waiting until after the election to decide if they will hire new workers and put new money to work. we really aren't in standstill mode in the u.s. economy right now. caller: another story -- i want to ask you about using the word "brace." guest: i think the president has had an antagonistic relationship with business. i think that's pretty clear. over the last several months he did lose the independent vote and the business vote. if the numbers show that he is actually winning, i could understand that now they are disappointed, because they were counting on some competition. but i don't think you can really tell right now. it's hard to know how accurate the polls are. in some cases i think the media is pulling democrats and other cases people don't necess
